Come to Melbourne and enjoy great open water racing!

Sandringham Yacht Club, your host for the J24 World Championships in November 2026, is located

With a proud 111 year history, Sandringham Yacht Club is seen as one of the finest yacht clubs in
Australia and the premier keelboat club in Victoria. With a permanent fleet of 20 J24s, a large
hardstand area with two cranes, we are immediately adjacent to our race area. Your families and

Now is the time to be thinking about ‘down-under’ in 2026.

Come to Melbourne for the Worlds
and experience life down under!

Sandringham Yacht Club is an iconic club,
it’s located right on the water (’The Bay’) with a
stunning club house featuring a bay-facing members



bar and lounge, function rooms, fully catered
restaurant style meals and regular musical
entertainment from some of Australia’s best
musicians, we’ll guarantee you a great time !
If that isn’t enough, there is so much more to see in
Melbourne, one of the worlds ‘restaurant cities’ with a
vibrant music, entertainment and sports culture. Lose
yourself among bars and boutiques, galleries and
street art, high end restaurants and ‘hole in the wall’
cafes in Melbourne’s famous laneways.
Melbourne has more than 3,500 restaurants and
serves up cuisines from more than 70 countries. It’s
the coffee capital of Australia, (not many cities take
their coffee as seriously as Melbourne does),
importing an average of 30 tonnes of coffee beans a
day. Melbourne loves beer almost as much as it loves
coffee. A hops-lover’s heaven, bubbling with micro
breweries and craft breweries that have bloomed into
winning brew pubs. Beer lovers … Melbourne has you
covered. Victoria is also home to 21 different wine
regions, and more than 699 wineries, many right on
Melbourne’s doorstep.
Discover the diversity and beauty of regional Victoria,
from world-class wineries to natural springs, coastal
villages, peninsulas and alpine towns. Drive one of
the many scenic roads, pull on your walking boots
and follow tracks and trails, or wander shops and
produce markets.


It’s no coincidence the Worlds have been organised
to align with the famous Melbourne Cup Racing
Carnival “The race that stops the nation”, it takes
place in Melbourne on the first Tuesday of November,


and we’ve allowed for that with a spare day for those
that want to go. With live music performances,


fashions in the field, casual seating as well as
premium dinning and hospitality.



Melbourne, voted “the most liveable city in the
world” 7 times.
Isn’t it time you came and experienced it for yourself?
